17 year old youth arrested for the killing of María Esther in Arriate: "17 year old youth has been arrested by the Guardia Civil in connection with the killing of the 13 year old girl, María Esther Jiménez Villegas, in the Málaga village of Arriate. Her body was found on the outskirts of the village on January 20.
It’s understood that the Guardia Civil has taken the arrested 17 year old man to their barracks in Ronda for questioning, and that a search of his home is now underway.
It follows reports that DNA had been found under the nails of the victim. Speaking to Tele5, her mother, Carmen Villegas, said that the arrest was ‘a relief’ for the family, and the best gift possible for her child who would have turned 14 on Tuesday this week.
There were reports earlier that police considered a gang of María Esther’s friends had been responsible for her death, but as yet, only one arrest has been made."
